New Zealand may Kim Dotcom extradition to the US




A judge in New Zealand has decided Wednesday that Kim Dotcom and three others may be extradited to the United States. The ruling comes nearly four years after the four were indicted in the US

The US wants Dotcom and three others, including the Dutchman Bram van der Kolk, sue because they have violated the copyright file-sharing site Megaupload. After Dotcom was arrested in 2012, he was released on bail. The US entertainment industry say they more than $ 500 million by dotcoms activity is lost.

According to the US attorney Dotcom is there evidence in the case, but the evidence is not sufficient for criminal liability. Internet providers are also protected by the government against the content that third parties disseminate, says the lawyer on Radio New Zealand. The case revolves according to the lawyer for having a safe haven and not a serious criminal offense. That, to him the interpretation of international copyright law. He also hopes that the government in New Zealand is strong enough to withstand the US. The case will go through several courts, which can go up to the Supreme Court in New Zealand. In that case, it still takes additional two to four years before a verdict.
